How many American citizens re
tired to rest on Sunday night thank
ful that, whatever other ills might be
in store in future, Orautismo wad at
last !}t an end.
All the Radicals are going to Gov
ernor Hampton for money. Chai
berlaiu's cheek is such that it would
not be surprising should he also
petition for a quarter's salary from
the ton per cent. contribution.
In the House of Representatives
on the 3d inst , a resolution was re
ported by Knott, of Kentucky, and
adopted by a strict party vote, of
137 to 88, declaring that Tilden had
received 196 votes of the duly
qualified electors, and was thereby
duly elected President ; and that in
the opinion of the House, Hendricks
having received a like number of
electoral votes, was thereby duly
Now that Hayes is declared
President, ho should reward those
indiviluals to whom, instead of to
the people, lie is indebted for his
success. Madison Wells should be
made charge d'afhaires fir Mexico,
in which happy land he would be
bulldosed most effectually in a
week; while Chamberlain should be
made consul for Cafraria, and
Stearns envoy extraordinary to
Willitun Stone has boen nom&i.
nated as United States District
Attorney for South Cnrolinn. This
is the same Stone who was law
partner of Corbin, and subsequently
Attorney-General of the State.
The only noteworthy acts he per
formed were as a member of the
infamous Canvassing Board. For
these he was incarcerated in the
Richhand jail, but was released by
Bond. He is a fitting person to
become prosecuting counsel before
Bond's court. But if this is a
sample of the Federal appointments
under Hayes, it is idle to speak of
justice to the South. Stoeno's past
record has forever damned him in
the sight of all dcent men.
The New Presid ent.
Rt. B3. Hay-es has been inaugurated
as President of tile United States.,
Of the til by which lie holds thle
hlighest offle in the gift of the peo
pie, we wvill say nothing, save that it
is founded in iniquity andl is honey
combedi with fraud. The m-mn who
was repudiated by a majority of
a million whites, and a quarter of a
million of all the voters, and who
received a minority of twelve votes
ill the Electoral College, has, by the
indecont conduct of a boar-d, consti
tuted expressly to sift out the truth,
tbeen coiled to preside over the des
r tinies of a great nation. No act that
he canl perform w~ill wipe off the
stigma.esting ulpon his inauigura
He can, however, by hiscodc
endeavor, in some degree, to atone
for the wrong his party and himself
have done to the nation. The gov
ernent, under the administration
of Grant, has fallen to pieces. Every
department is rotten. The Federal
appointees are with fe'w exceptions
knaves aged plunderers. If Hayes
expect. to receive ev-en a small share
of respect, lie must reconstruct all
tihe branches of the government
from the bottona. Especially is this
necessary in the South. Tho recon
structed States have suffered from
as graeess ea set of scoundrels as
over diegraoed a penitenltlary. They
must be turned adrift. The troops
must be relieved from police duty in
South Carolina and Louisiana.
Hampton and Nicholls must he
pronmptly recognied. The South
must he acknowledged as being
upon tage of perfect equality with
the othg te94ions of the Union, and
her representatives must be received
as peergn posse. He Federal
goverm . has noQw Yy :Jruil
tenure upon eitL er the love bi tl
beginning in any quarter, may quick- 1
ly spread over the whole Union.
'T'here is a point beyond which for
bearance ceases to be a virtue, and .
the South has almost reached that
point. Mr. Hayes will be wise to
heed conciliatory counsels, and to
abstain from bolstoriug up thieves
Mr. Hayes will not have a bed
of roses. But when one seizes a
position to which he is not entitled,
ho must not complain if it be uncom
The next few days will de
cide whether the Republican
party has learned wisdom, or
whether it is still going to destruc.
The Supreme Court has decided
that Wade Hampton is governor
de jure and de facto of South Caro
lina. Justices Willard and Wright
signed an order for the release of
Tilda Norris, pardoned by Gover
nor Hampton. Wright subsequent
ly presented a memorandum to the
clerk containing a retraction of his
conlcurrence, but this goes for 1
nought. It was unofficial, and was
properly not recognized by the
superintendent of the penitentiary,
who released the convict. Wright's
conduct was unfortunate for him
self. Boset by Bowen, Worthing
ton, Gleaves and Whipper, (all of
whom should be indicted for con
spiracy) and by them brought to the
verge, it is said, of delirium tremens,
he endeavored to reverse his act
performed under solemn conviction
after legal argument, and in logical
sequence of his former decisions.
He then fled the State. Such con
duct is pitiable in the extreme, and
throws contempt upon the court.
Judge Willard has noted like a man
and a judge all through ; and
though he simply performed his
duty. he is entitled to the thanks of t
It was all along known that Gov
ernor Hampton was legally elected
governor, and the people long since
resolved to recognize no other. But
they will be pleased to hear that the
Supreme Court has also taken a
proper view of the case, as this will
greatly simplify matters. Governor
Hampton will now move on, and
Chamberlain's shadow will still

CoUMBa, March 2.
On the 27th ult., Judges Willard
and Wright signed an order releas
ing Tilda Norris from the custody
of the superintendent of the peni,.
tontiary, on the pardon of Governor
Hampton. Yesterday, after most
outrageous bulldozing by the Radi
calp, Wright tiled an adverse opin
ion. This last opinion is believed
to be the work of Chamberlain, and
places Wright in the novel lposition
of having reversed his own judg
ment. To-day Judge Willard an
nounced in open court that he had
sent the sheriff for Judge Wright,
but his whereabouts could not be
ascertained. He then stated the f
circumstances of the signing of the
original order, and of Wright's
subsequent action. He directed the a
clerk tu serve a copy of the order
upon the superintendent of the
penitentiary.--which has effected
the release of Tilda Norris, and
establishes Gov. Hampton's pardon
ing power. Wright's second opinion
is, like Judge Carpenter's, to the
effect that Chamberlain holds over.
Nobody knows where Wright is.
Some say he has gone to Washing
ton, while others beleve that dhe as
still in Columbia..
